We’ve named our team for Sunday’s League clash with Galway at what’s set to be a cold, wet, windy (is it ever anything else?) and rather full Pearse Stadium (throw-in 2pm). Here’s the pick we’ve named:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Galway, 11/2.2018): David Clarke (Ballina Stepenites); Brendan Harrison (Aghamore), Ger Cafferkey), Eoin O’Donoghue (Belmullet); Colm Boyle (Davitts), Stephen Coen (Hollymount/Carramore), Paddy Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels); Jason Gibbons (Ballintubber), Shane Nally (Garrymore); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber); Neil Douglas (Castlebar Mitchels), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole), Conor Loftus (Crossmolina), .
So it’s two changes from the side that started against Kerry last time out. Into the team come Colm Boyle and Conor Loftus, replacing Barry Moran and the injured Evan Regan.
The team we’ve named, which, when contrasted to the one that started against the same opposition at the same venue last June, contains six survivors. David Clarke, Ger Cafferkey, Stephen Coen, Paddy Durcan, Kevin McLoughlin and Diarmuid O’Connor all started for us that frustrating day in Salthill, while Colm Boyle, Aidan O’Shea and Jason Doherty – who were all sprung from the bench that day – also start on Sunday.
Best of luck to the team named for this crunch League clash with the neighbours.
